For an event focusing on gin there was little choice - Eden Mill, Gordons or Tanqueray only - and severely overpriced. Even the staff looked embarrassed to be there! The whole thing just felt like a total shambles, no atmosphere at all, barely any seating. For £25 a ticket, it only covered entry (the Biscuit Factory seemed like it could be a cool venue but the atmosphere was bland, no seating, & only "ok" music) and 1 drink of standard gin & tonic. Really not worth it & major regret having gone.

The music was great, the weather was perfect, amazing street food. Brilliant evening topped of by cracking set from Greg Wilson.

I expected a larger selection of gins. Both standard and premium gins were overpriced. Didn't like the fact there was only 1 type of tonic - premium tonic. Should have had a larger selection of scottish gins. Really liked the top floor of the biscuit factory as a venue - stunning in fact. Bit weird you couldn't take your drink between floors and one bar downstairs didn't serve gin at all ... there should have at least been a sign explaining this as we didn't discover this until we were getting served.

I attended the Edinburgh event and it let me really disappointed. It was really disorganized.
The venue has so much potential however already at 7 pm there was one functioning ladies toilet at level 2 and at towering queue of ladies at the lower level. It was a joke!!!!
Paying 25£ for a entrance ticket I would not expect to pay 7-8£ for a gin and tonic at the venue!
The "food market" was 3 lonely stalls and it was just OK.
Some of the DJ were good other not on theme and really reeeeaaally boring.
The dance floor at level 2 was empty all the time I have been at the party (7 to 11 pm), here there were the fancy gin bar, which of course didn't accept card payment and No cash machine was available at the venue. We managed to put some cash together and get one of this pricey drink there but they didn't have a license for making you carrying the drink downstairs so we were awkwardly stuck in this empty room for long while....
I was really looking forward to the event but it turn out not good. Thankfully, it was a beautiful warm sunny day and I was in amazing company so over all we had fun but I won't be going there again.

This could have been such a great night. However, it was little less than mediocre. Great venue and the tunes were pretty good, but the beer was warm and expensive, there were only 3-4 food stalls and the bathrooms were pretty gross. We weren't allowed to take alcohol upstairs onto the second floor, which was frankly ridiculous. We left at 10.30pm, feeling thoroughly disappointed.

Very expensive night. Music was not disco. Lots of security people. there was no information anywhere which said security staff would stop you going upstairs with gin bought downstairs. Definitely wouldn’t go back

We were told it started at 3 and we turn up it starts at 4. The event was still being set up when we did arrive and we felt that we were an inconvenience to the staff.
The prices were absolutely ridiculous and the quality did not reflect the price!

Overpriced drinks, chaotic bars, good music but a soulless event only interested in making as much margin as possible.

This event was really poor. The gin on offer was no better than the selection you would get in an average pub. There was no disco , funk or soul music. Atmosphere was non existent, especially upstairs as it was so bright.
You couldn’t take drinks between floors even though they were in plastic cups.
The Biscuit Factory is a great venue but this was not a great event. So over priced too.

Disappointing event for the price. The gin upstairs was more expensive than downstairs but exactly the same. One small, very bog standard gin on arrival.
